They look great , I love pots and baskets but am absolutely useless with them. I'm a very lazy gardener and always forget to water them. The only plants in my garden are ones that survive on neglect.

Thanks for the positive comments, you can't beat a bit of colour for cheering one up.

HH and YG......... Mrs B doesn't do any watering, I do it all.
That is maybe because I have some IBC tanks,  I use as water butts and pump the water with  tractor from my carp lake into IBC's, saves a bit of money on water.

Hopefully, when I get it all set up, rain water collected from the roof of the dog kennels during the winter, will be enough to water the flower pot, tubs hanging baskets and fruit and veg patch.
